Avanan Cloud Security Platform Feature Reviews

Game changing email security and mitigation!

2020-11-11

At a management level, I can easily keep an eye out for possibly leaks.

Pros

The management of questionable emails or DLP is easily decided by end users, almost in real time or by IT management - depending on your easily customizable setup.

Cons

Avanan has still not implemented the ability to simply block by TLD extension, such as .jp or .cn . Their UI can be a little unwieldly at times, but that said they are keen on improving their product and very responsive to user feedback.

Cloud Email Security? = Avanan

2020-11-10

It helps us a lot in the detection of suspicious emails that usually turn out to be phishing attempts and also has a great management console which gives us great visibility of what's happening on our environment.

Pros

Basically it does what it says it would do. We've been using the tool for our environment and it's been helping us a lot with email security.

Cons

The management console could be a little difficult to understand and sometimes the custom queries, for custom searches, could be a little confusing.

Email security on the go!

2020-11-05

The administrator can login and monitor from anywhere making it a great flexible tool and its very good when it comes to tracking malicious activity within emails and has great protection from spam and malware emails sent to the personnel of our organization and finally, its DLP tracking is robust enough to review any potential data leaks.

Pros

The insight gives us the broad vision over the 3rd party services being used.

Cons

No major dislikes as of now. But the support they provide solve most of problems we face.

Avanan - Great Product For Phishing Protection

2020-11-30

Overall experience has been excellent, once set up properly it is amazingly seamless to operate.

Pros

Ease of use and transparent reporting. When properly configured most tasks can be done without leaving the Avanan interface.

Cons

Around the same time Google was making changes to their APIs so while set up took a bit longer it likely was not Avanans fault.

Avanan is the best email security app

2020-12-11

As a company that loves SaaS apps, we found Avanan as the best solution for us by protecting us from security incidents, spammers, and phishing attacks. just about few days it prevents and quarantines a phishing attempt in our organization.

Pros

The highest technology based on AI with the capability to manage and control in one single dashboard which is so user-friendly makes it super powerful!

Cons

Very few cases of false-positive, not something that others not having but with the great responsive answer from their support it's like invisible.

All Around Great Product

2020-11-18

The added benefit of being able to scan OneDrive and SharePoint to search for malware makes this product a no brainer.

Pros

The ability to remove phishing messages from users mailboxes easily.

Cons

I couldn't find anything I didn't like. It sounded like they are always improving and adding new features as well

Eradicate phishing emails and track suspicious login activity all in one platform

2020-11-17

We had an ongoing issue with phishing emails bypassing Office 365 filters and transport rules and a number of our staff would click on these phishing emails and subsequently have their accounts compromised.

Pros

We set up several policies in an intuitive manner to deal with certain types of email.

Cons

There are very rare instances where I will get a phishing email that bypasses their engine, but after reporting it to Avanan's support team, they submit these particular emails into their algorithm to prevent those emails from rearing their ugly heads again.

Outstanding Email Protection

2020-11-12

They have outstanding support when we've needed it and the UI is simple to use yet very powerful.

Pros

In an age where email is the primary attack vector for malicious activity, Avanan is a vital tool for our overall security.

Cons

Early versions of the console were a little slow at times, but they have made significant improvements lately

Better than Microsoft ATP

2020-11-12

Our users are no longer getting emails that contains viruses, or malware, or malicious links.

Pros

I am one of the users in the company that is tasked with verifying what is blocked, creating reports, and identifying and resolving issues.

Cons

I see no cons with AVANAN so far. It has blocked nearly all of the spam I used to see. I myself get 0!!

Advanced email security done right!

2020-11-23

It was getting to be too much to manage, knowing that if one user clicks a bad link, it could results in a security incident. While we provide continual security awareness training, I'd MUCH rather prevent them from receiving the emails to begin with and have to think about how to respond to them.

Pros

It was shocking to see truly how many email threats make it through O365's "filtering". Avanan helps me sleep better at night.

Cons

My only dislike is, honestly, that I didn't learn about Avanan sooner.

Avanan: Takes some time to dial in, but once done, Whoooa Moma!

2020-11-06

The interface is very straight-forward, and allows you access to powerful features out of the gate such as rules-based policies that can be changed per mailbox; I really like being able to create custom queries, save those queries and then use them to check on emails and how the policies are dealing with them.

Pros

Avanan took legitimately less than 10 minutes to set up for our trial, and hooking it into Office365 was easy and straight-forward.

Cons

Tuning will take a little bit of time, but this is the "Nature of the Beast" in Security.

A Great Produt for its Value

2020-11-11

Overall, my experience has been very positive. The support is great and again they have a habit of listening and making changes.

Pros

I very much enjoy how the application is API based instead of working as a MX record.

Cons

The whitelist does not always work. Users receiving messages from multiple domains with the same name have a habit of getting caught even when whitelisted.

I can't say enough good things about Avanan.

2020-12-01

The product is great and the one time I had to get help for something they walked me through the needed config change right away.

Pros

We had emails that bypass Office 365's spam and phishing filters. Avanan prevents our users from clicking on things they shouldn't.

Cons

Nothing at all. I used to look at it every day and now I just look at it every once in a while. Maybe once every two to three weeks.

Avanan Highly Recommended

2019-12-17

The fact that Avanan sits infront of Microsoft ATP filter is great as it gives us capabilities that other security solutions can't offer.

Pros

The modular "a la carte" design and ability to choose between multiple security vendors to suit the organization's needs while providing an effective security layer to one of the largest attack vectors today - email.

Cons

The web gui is not very intuitive and can be a little tricky to drill into at times

Avanan: Best in Class Customer Service, Products, and Features

2019-12-17

It is an understatement to say the program is easy to use, and it powerful and useful.

Pros

I also like that it is API based. It works in conjunction with the standard office 365 security features, instead of replacing them and rendering them useless, like the other popular solutions on the market.

Cons

I honestly can't think of any major dislikes or complaints. Any time I have had any issues or questions, I have been able to get it resolved or I have been able to get an answer form the support team.

Avanan Works

2020-11-24

I use it on a daily basis and can definitely see it blocking harmful content that would otherwise end up on our users' mailboxes.

Pros

It is fairly easy for me to find something in the Dashboard and when I do have a question or require support, Avanan's team is quick to answer.

Cons

The only thing I wish Avanan could do is strip emails from our users' mailboxes in the event a bad email made it through to multiple users.
